We had sole and steak with cider sauce. Both dishes were very good, the restaurant carries the "Home Made" Label, which means you won't get frozen produce (except for the french fries, which they told us when we ordered). Staff very enthusiastic, sometimes a bit...More

Probably a good restaurant if you want to eat shell fish. The sole was disappointing and lacking in flavour and relatively expensive. The service was excellent.

We stopped here for seafood after visiting some of the sites in the area. The food is good enough to make you want to come back for another visit. The view of the beach enhances the dining experience.

We were a large party of all ages including children. An excellent unhurried meal, really good sea food and very reasonably priced. A delightful friendly restaurant

Popped in for lunch. Stunning view and excellent food. Well worth the drive out from the main harbour area. Very friendly event though we came in right at the end of lunch time and were very much the last to leave.
